Voting for what book I should read in May was close. But, Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics was the winner, so that’s the book I will definitely be reading in May.
Like last month, I’m going to do the review based on reader questions. Here’s a short summary via Wikipedia if you don’t know anything about the book:
Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art is a 215-page non-fiction comic book, written and drawn by Scott McCloud and originally published in 1993. It explores the definition of comics, the historical development of the medium, its fundamental vocabulary, and various ways in which these elements have been used. It discusses theoretical work on comics (or sequential art) as an artform and a communications medium. It is also uses the comic medium for non-storytelling purposes.
You can also find out more at Scott McCloud’s website.
Leave a comment on this post with a question you want me to answer (preferably about this book, but I’ll take others ) and I’ll use those questions for my review!
